This is an unusual post for me. But, a very good friend has been cleaning out his elderly parents attic and stumbled across these. The first is a vintage Yamaha trumpet and the second is a Carl Fischer saxophone. Both are complete with cases and mouthpieces. I'm hoping someone will be able to tell me something about these, such as how old these are. I'll be cleaning and conditioning the cases, but, should I polish these instruments or leave them as is?
He was going to throw these in the garbage. But thankfully, he called me yesterday and asked if I'd like to have them. Of course, I said yes!!! I played trumpet and coronet for six years during middle school and high school. But, it's been about 38 years since I've picked up a trumpet. So, perhaps I may start playing again.
He also found 3 stave puzzles and was going to throw those away as well. My sister salvaged those as stave puzzles tend to be high dollar items.
Thanks everyone for stopping in for a look and any help you can give me!!!
